    Question What about the 1920's?

    So theres alot of talk about the 1920's replacing the main entrance. So my question is what about the 1920's should be instilled in the entrance area. I would love to see alot of atmosphere visuals in architecture, A newsie yelling out some info about the park(parade/show times) handing out some kind of info papers, themed vehicles, and of course the MUSIC!

    Since it is DCA and prohibition is at its height, I think that someone should be selling some moonshine out near what is a now condor flats.

    I'd like to see "Bonnie and Clyde" or even "Dick Tracy" style gangsters.

    Re: What about the 1920's?

    One has to remember the reason that 1923 is important to D.C.A.'s presentation. Namely, that year is the one in which Walt Disney left middle America in order to establish the first cartoon studio in Hollywood.

    The show elements need to support the telling of the story of Walt Disney's life and career in California, including the founding of The Walt Disney Company, itself.

    I'd like to see something along the lines of "Public Enemy" and those style prohibition era gangsters. I don't know how it fits with Disney or California but to me that era is the cat's pajamas.

    I hadn't really thought about it, but a speakeasy of some sort would be pretty cool.

    I would add the actual garage where the first films were made along with a representation of the Kingswell storefront where the first studio was located.

    The studio lot in Burbank has an historic structure that was moved from the Hyperion Avenue plant, and I'd like to see that building relocated to D.C.A., too.

    D.C.A. certainly needs more authenticity.

    Hmmm.... We have $1.2 billion to spend, what does everybody say, let's build a tour of an old garage and some buildings that were once on Hyperion?

    That sounds boring PI.

    Re: What about the 1920's?

    I agree with everything everyone has posted so far, especially the point about theming around Walt Disney's life.

    None of these ideas really sound too risque at all! It's CA in 1920s, not Pixar in the alternate universe CA.
    "Peter," she asked, trying to speak firmly, "what are your exact feelings to me?"
    "Those of a devoted son, Wendy."
    "I thought so," she said, and went and sat by herself at the extreme end of the room.
